Snow Daze

We had a ball last week - a snow ball that is. Daddy was in CA. On Tuesday we started the day with a gym class. The weather people kept talking about a snow storm but we didn't see anything. They canceled my school just in case.

Wednesday started normal enough, but right after lunch it started snowing. We made muffins with Mommy in case the power went out. Mommy called them "survival muffins." The snow kept coming and coming and soon we couldn't see our grass. We also got sleet. We saw on the TV that a lot of people had trouble driving home.

Wednesday night we rode a sled to Brendan and Paige's house for dinner. Trent cried the whole time. Mommy had to carry him. He would not ride in the sled. Mommy said we need to take him to Michigan to harden him up. After dinner we watched the movie Frozen. Good choice. When we got home we found that our neighbor Carson had shoveled our driveway.

After that late, cold night, we slept in. We played in the house all day. While Trent was napping we played outside. Carson came over to help shovel the driveway again. We went to Brendan and Paige's again for dinner, this time chocolate pancakes like iHop!

Friday afternoon was the first time we went out in the car. It was warmer that day so most of the snow melted.

Daddy got home on Saturday. He was supposed to get home on Thursday but airplanes weren't flying. By the time he got home, a lot of the snow had melted.

Wow, pull one out and they keep coming!

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
